Tea Towel Curtains (With An Unexpected Vintage Trim)

A few weeks ago I came across this idea and I knew I had to recreate it!

I was lucky enough to find these tea towels at Joann for $8.99/ 3-pack:

I added a little pocket to the back using some left over fabric from my dish towel project so that the curtain rod could slide through without having to fold back the fabric and lose the top stripe.

Here is the end result…sort of:

I would have been happy with a simple curtain made from just two tea towels.  Unfortunately, the fabric of the two towels was not long enough. Since I am in a rental, and the curtain rod was already attached to the wood trim, I didn’t want to make another hole in the wood.  Instead, I added some vintage eyelet trim I found at a thrift store in Florida many months ago.

It’s a little more “country” than I had envisioned, but I have grown to love it, especially since the trim reminds me of home.  I also love that it’s a mix of old and new.  Very fitting for a girl who just moved out of state for the first time EVER! 🙂

Sooo…what do you think? You know we heart comments here at Aqua Seventy6!
